Put the kids to bed and have a good time watching this one.
"Free For All" is a funny animated show geared for younger adults with a look that IMO is VERY similar to Gary Trudeau's Doonesbury comic strip style. An homage perhaps? The series features Johnny who lives with his drunken father and psycho grandmother who is trying to force Johnny to leave so she can have his room. Johnny is hopelessly in love with his neighbor Paula who is clueless about how he feels. Johnny's best friend is Clay - a millionaire who owns a ferret (Angus) that is addicted to Vico-den (their spelling) and booze. The animation is crisp and typical of the newer fare on Saturday morning TV. The story line is decidedly adult, peppered with numerous obscenities and numerous sexual scenes. Definitely not for the kiddies. Kids wouldn't find this funny anyway as most material would be over their heads, but mature audiences should find this highly amusing and a fun half hour. Enjoy!
